Mak Research Output Enhancing Visibility of African Science

Published

on

Trends emerging from a workshop organized by the Centre for Higher Education Transformation (CHET), South Africa to launch the HERANA Phase 3 indicate that Makerere University's citations for research from the period 2009 to 2013 are rising even faster, meaning a greater presence/visibility for African science.

Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa (HERANA)’s research component investigates the complex relationships between higher education and development in the African context, with a specific focus on economic and democratic development. HERANA’s eight African flagship universities include: University of Botswana, University of Cape Town, University of Dar es Salaam, Eduardo Mondlane University, University of Ghana, Makerere University, University of Mauritius and the University of Nairobi.  

The HERANA Phase 3 entitled “Institutionalising data collection and analysis to strengthen knowledge production in a group of emerging research-intensive flagship universities in sub-Saharan Africa” got underway at a three-day workshop held 18-21 November 2014 in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Other emerging trends indicated that there is a considerable percentage increase in publication output, particularly beyond 2010, with Makerere and Ghana leading the group, and Nairobi and Botswana slowing down.
